Default Light jacket

Hi Guys,

I don't ride, so I need some help from you guys.

My dad wants a riding jacket, with padding. He's only owned a bike for about three year. He has a great one for cooler weather but I want to find something light/summer that also has the protection he needs.

Suggestions appreciated,
Ryan

I'm partial to Scorpion and have a nice mesh jacket I've been using for the last 2 years. Got it from Motorcyclegear.com. And they usually have some great drals in their closeout section.

If it were me I'd give him a gift certificate. It's hard to pick out riding cloths that someone else will feel comfortable wearing.

I agree with papa, but if you are dead set on getting him a jacket look at the one he has now. see what style and size it is, stick with that manufacture and size.
this is a good company for jackets.
